Basically,


My bike has a choke. The choke is on the carb. In the cold, I switch it on, start it up and leave it for a bit. Sometimes when i switch the choke off and go to rev it, the engine doesnt repsond and sounds like it is flooding, but it shouldnt. This sometimes happens at the lights, i get no throttle repsonse. After the bike has warmed up tho it works fine.


Anyone know what could be the problem?

if you throttle back whilst on choke you will supply too much fuel at the wrong mix and therefore nearly, or actually flood the engine, take it gently on choke then take it off choke once warm enough, i tend to go about 300 yards on choke before knocking it off...


the choke will give you enough to pull away from the lights so there's no need to rev it..

ok thanks. its a bit hard to turn the choke off whilst i have my gloves on/going along as it is right underneath the seat. It seems to be ok as it is a bit warmer weather now, but I think i have got the hang of it


thanks
